The car will be based off the 1-series in order to create a very light and fast on its feet roadster which which come exclusivly in a ragtop configuration in order to keep weight down and to distance itself from its older Z4 brother which is moving to a convertable hardtop design. Some of the plans are even calling for a purely manual top in order to further reduce weight (although an automatic top function will likely be available as an option).

Ok, you guys be the judge on this one.
This is a new “performance” knob from ACS which introduces the concept of a large red lighted number to tell you which gear you are in.
ACS claims that as of now, determining which gear you are in is based off of feel; but with this new knob you get a visual display and its “cool”.

Heres what Daniel mentioned about the car:

First off, we were picked up at the Airport by Greenville Marriott. We were treated like Kings, I loved every minute of it. My friend Pat and I were treated to a very nice dinner, inside the Marriott, covered by BMW.
Next morning we wake up, to yet another meal covered by BMW. A great breakfast, with omelets made right in front of us. We were then taken by the Hotel to the BMW Performance center where our day of fun started.
